Podcast: NBAA Helps Showcase Career Opportunities in Business Aviation

Dec. 30, 2019

Recently, NBAA’s Kristi Ivey and Jo Damato took part in Auburn University’s first-ever Business Aviation Day – a two-day event devoted entirely to the industry. While colleges and universities often hold events that cover the full range of aviation opportunities, Auburn’s event, which focused entirely on the industry, was years in the making, Ivey said. “If we can keep this formula going…I think gone will be the days of, ‘I fell accidentally into business aviation,’ and that will be replaced with, ‘I intentionally planned a career in business aviation’,” noted Damato.

In this episode of NBAA Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Kristi Ivey, Norther Mountain Regional Representative, NBAA
  • Jo Damato, Vice President of Educational Strategy and Workforce Development, NBAA
  • NBAA Flight Plan is sponsored by Schedaero, the software that elevates your flight operations.
